Mixing wood trim and wood cabinets?
Part of our kitchen renovation will involve removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room. The rest of the first floor has the original, dark-stained trim. In the kitchen, we had been planning on vertical grain fir lowers and painted uppers.
However, I was not considering the impact of opening the two rooms to each other. Now the wood floor, original wood trim, and VG fir cabinets will all be visible together. I fell in love with VG fir, so I'm not sure I can think objectively about whether it's really a good fit for the overall look of the first floor.
Can anyone share some photos of contrasting wood trim and cabinets? (Please excuse the slightly blurry photo from my phone below.)
